Will- That's Mac on drums and bass for "The Ballad of John and Yoko"- George and Ringo were tied up, and Lennon was hot to get his new song recorded, so only he and Paul are actually present on that song. haven't ever heard any credible info that paul plays drums on any other track, but who knows.

Paul was known also to take guitar solos, much to the chagrin of George. Examples are the slide solo on 'Drive My Car', and the fuzzed out solo on George's own 'Taxman'.

thanks SB; yep, I'd heard of that one, but this scenario is more along the lines of "being disappointed with his drumming...Paul returned to the studio...re-recorded the drum track..." or some such...

Searching on the web comes up with all sorts of bizarre speculation, and that could've very well been all I ever read yrs ago.

like you say, "who knows"?

Paul played on Back in the USSR and Dear Prudence. This was when Ringo quit in August 1968, returning later after the songs were recorded. John and George also added some drum parts to Back in the USSR which can be heard in the left channel.

So it seems. I know Ringo left for a short period during the White Album sessions but I guess I always assumed none of the "filled in" drums actually made it onto the album. Thanks for info- there's a little more info here for those (like me) who were not aware of this:

Another tidbit about Ringo:

He made a fortune selling smokeless ashtrays and pocket fisherman fishing rods.

Oops, I'm sorry, that's a revelation about RONCO.
